Trail Overview

Prairie Peak is located on BLM land outside of Triangle Lake, Oregon. The area is a system of trails and dirt roads that wind their way up to a broadcast tower at the peak that can make for some easy riding and great scenic views. The trail leading up to the peak is a somewhat maintained dirt road with ruts up to 12 inches deep. When wet or raining the trail will retain a good amount of water within the ruts creating mud holes. High clearance and A/T or mud tires recommended. At certain points throughout the trail there are optional side trails with moderate inclines that connect the main trail. These can be tricky when wet. The majority of the trail is wide enough for two vehicles but tightens up to one at various points. At the base of the mountain there is the Hult reservoir and offers primitive camping/day use areas at the water's edge. Cell service is limited so I recommend downloading maps of the area or you can pick up a hand drawn map from the Horton Corner Market.

Difficulty

When wet or raining the trail retains a lot of water. This makes the ruts fill with water creating mud holes up to 12 inches deep as well as making the rest of the dirt road slick and muddy.
